I am really drawn to this black and white garden gate drawing. It is more like a sketch than a full drawing with two short pillars and an open gate which welcomes the viewer into a garden that can’t be seen. Is it a pretty garden? Or is it a gate to an abandoned house where the garden has been left untended. The iron fence would imply that the home this gate surrounds is a stately one of good taste. I think this gardening image would also work great if used as a metaphor for new beginnings.
I love it when I find vintage materials like 1890 Baby’s Annual Pictures and Stories for Little People. It was published oh so long ago that it is now completely in the public domain. It’s too bad the original artist(s) weren’t identified but that is why this book falls under the 120 years post publication aspect of copyright law.
This image is copyright free and in the public domain anywhere that extends copyrights 70 years after death or at least 120 years after publication when the original illustrator is unknown.
